“Kaszt­ner’s Crime”

The Jewish Chronicle - - LIFE -

I was most in­ter­ested to read in Dr Michael Pinto-Duschin­sky’s com­ments (Jan 13) on Paul Bog­danor’s Kaszt­ner’s Crime that Dr Pinto was saved by Kaszt­ner from the Bu­dakalasz Brick Fac­tory. I was sim­i­larly saved, for which I am still grate­ful, the only dif­fer­ence be­ing that whilst he was just a year old I am some 14 years his se­nior and do have vivid rec­ol­lec­tions of those fate­ful months. He quotes a def­i­nite num­ber of res­cued, which I did not have and would very much ap­pre­ci­ate learn­ing the ori­gin of that fig­ure and any other de­tail he may have. he is un­able to find an ar­gu­ment to gain­say Kaszt­ner’s merit in achiev­ing this fur­ther res­cue. Clearly if he is not aware of the de­tails this could be an op­por­tu­nity for orig­i­nal, un­bi­ased re­search which, though ad­ver­tised, is ab­sent from his work.

In con­nec­tion with the claim for an orig­i­nal open mind it would be in­ter­est­ing to know how this can be rec­on­ciled with Mr Bog­danor’s ad­verse re­marks about Gaylen Ross’s film, prais­ing Kaszt­ner, from 2009 on.
